Beginner's Knitting Class

  • January 16, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

What:  This will be an introduction to knitting, or a refresher for those who have not picked up a set of needles in years. In this class, I will teach you about basic knitting techniques, such knit, purl, cast on/off, as well as gauge and what to look for when purchasing supplies for a project.

When:  Wednesday, Jan.16th at 6:30pm

Where:  Loretta's Place

Materials:  What is required for this class is some worsted weight yarn and size 7 knitting needles. You can purchase these yourself at Knit, Hancock's, Walmart, or Hobby Lobby. If you are unable to get these items before class, or you're just feeling uncertain that you'll purchase the wrong stuff, I'd be happy to pick up the yarn and needles for you from Knit for $25 (let me know by posting in the comments, along with your favorite color!).

Feel free to comment or contact me with any questions. My address and phone number will be sent the day before the event.

Just an FYI: I will be holding this at my apartment for now, and I do have pets. For future lessons, I am hoping to alternate between here and another (allergy-free) place.

    Thanks Loretta! I had fun learning to knit despite my abominable choice of yarn (don't get Red Heart, ladies). Hopefully I can attempt a scarf soon!

      Let's get you some good yarn and try again. I think you'll like it a lot better! It might have just been that particular skein that was a problem, because not all Red Heart will fray like that.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
